    Christmas suggestions

    Maybe Paul's parents' broom closet, which he used for a studio for last year's holiday mini ep, was booked up all week for recording a Steely Dan album.

    Episode 99 — A View To a Kill: LIVE

    I hate to be that guy, but I think that the people who survived a fall from the Golden Gate Bridge all fell from the clearance height of about 220 ft, not the tower height of 746 ft. However, Zorin was a genetic marvel, and he might have had a parachute somewhere on his person, so hell yeah, let's say he survived and bring him back. Or, they had another one of him all along, made from the same genetic material. I don't care how they do it, but I agree with you, they really should bring Walken back.

    I kept laughing at the length of Bond's shin in this poster. Then I noticed that it is the same width as Tanya's waist, and now I am appalled. But if you just focus on Bond's shin, it is really funny.

    Episode 99 — A View To a Kill: LIVE

    The film title, but not the plot, was based on the Ian Fleming short story, "From a View to a Kill," but the film producers dropped the word "From" out of the title. It appears that the short story is about Bond traveling from Versailles to a duel with an assassin. Maybe the title of the story meant that Bond was going from a view (i.e., the view of Versailles) to a kill (the death of the assassin) AND that the journey was being taken with the intention of making a kill or from the perspective of making a kill. However, given that the film is not about one particular journey to make one particular killing, the first interpretation of the title does not work for the movie--hence dropping the word "From.".

    Roger Ebert may have been wrong about the defect in Zorin's microchip plot. In an article by Joe Fay, entitled, "Target Silicon Valley: Why A View To A Kill Actually Made Sense," posted on October 8, 2012, on the IT website "The Register," the author wrote, "By 1984, when filming of A View to a Kill was underway, the chip business was worth $24bn and US firms accounted for between 50 to 60 per cent of this. It’s fair to assume that much of that was designed, if not completely manufactured in the Valley." Who should you believe, Ebert or this other nerd? Now, I'm going to try to find a retrospective look at the movie on a blimp website. Maybe that will also challenge the doubters.

    Made soda come out of my nose. Thank you, Jamie.

    Jamie: Nice effort, but too subtle. Try again. Maybe watch the chicken scene in "LOL" and come back to us.

    Strongly agree. I love when they go down rabbit holes like pasta robot, "Sleepaway Camp" opening, monkey rights. The butterfly discussion is an instant classic rabbit hole. I also love when they go into character, like the Pacino/cab driver or Hello, Lauren bits in the "88 Minutes" ep or Kroll's imitation of the costumers in "Justin to Kelly" or the phone call about the band sticker on the shovel in "Jack Frost." The map table contractors might be my favorite imagined dialogue ever.

    Favorite action scene: Five minutes of Bond gingerly carrying his girlfriend down a ladder.

    Moore's over-expressive eye work and other facial contortions were a vestigial acting technique from all his roles in the silent film era. By the way, the crazy ladder truck bit was also popular before talkies were invented.

    Serious question: Why is Bond trying to stop Zorin alone? I mean, as soon as Zorin kills Tibbett and tries to kill Bond, you don't need a spy anymore. Just call in back up, arrest Zorin, and stop his criminal operations, whatever they happen to be.

    At his age, Moore-Bond should have been looking for someone named "Karen Soulmate." Admittedly, I am on the cautious side, but my preference for Bond girl name would be "H. Ivy Negatiff."

    Episode 98.5 — Minisode 98.5

    No. I was saying that the good agent suggested roles in movies 1, 3, and 5; and the bad agent suggested roles in movies 2, 4, and 6. It's a split personality thing. But since you asked, I live in a universe narrated by Morgan Freeman.

    "A View to a Kill" is basically Walken doing a great Walken imitation, surrounded by a pretty bad movie. I would put this Walken performance almost up there with "Seven Psychopaths," "Suicide Kings," "Biloxi Blues," and "Annie Hall." His smile right before he dies is an AWESOME choice. I might take Walken and Barden as the best Bond villains. By the way, check out Walken's IMDB. WTF? "The Deer Hunter," "Balls of Fury," "King of New York," "The Country Bears," "Domino," "Kangaroo Jack," etc.? My theory is that Walken has two agents, one who went to NYU film school and one who is illiterate and hates him.
